Offline saving of form data

P: n/a
Background: People want to be able to record large amounts of product
data ("a few MB") on laptop or tablet PCs without _any_ kind of network
connection, and then to submit the data to a database in the office come
the end of the day. The installed base of the machines is controllable,
but should include familiar concepts and structures, and it should be
easy to deploy on many computers. The solution will be used for
approximately two years.

Concept: For this I am doing a feasibility study on XHTML, with tables
of forms to submit the data, IE as the browser, and some kind of script
to pack the data into XML.

Problem: Does anyone know if this is feasible in JavaScript, or any
other client-side scripting language natively supported by IE? I found
two solutions:
- http://www.acky.net/tutorials/javascripts/cookies/, which seems to
only be able to save the information into cookies, without prior
formatting, and
- http://developer.netscape.com/viewso...elds_form.html, which can't
handle more than 4 KB of data.

URLs to examples or concepts explained would also be welcome.
